St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
With mobile devices containing more crucial information than ever, Mobile Rhino (http://www.mobile-rhino.com), the first mobile device insurance program available through licensed insurance agents, has created a list of best practices for businesses and individuals seeking to protect the data stored on their iPads and iPhones.
Between iPhones and iPads, which are already operating in over 94% of Fortune 500 companies, business professionals and consumers face the serious risk of losing sensitive or proprietary information if their devices become lost or stolen.
To combat data breach and privacy threats from a mobile device loss or theft, Mobile Rhino developed a list of proactive best practices for protecting mobile device data.
“When we began developing Mobile Rhino, we found that out of the 85 million iPhones sold since 2007, 22% have been lost. And for consumers and businesses who see their mobile device as a lifeline and never want to be without it or the information it stores, they need to take measures to ensure that they are protected from the start. That’s why we developed this list of best practices that complement Mobile Rhino’s digital life protection,” said Dwight Stuckey, creator of Mobile Rhino.
To protect valuable data before a loss or theft even happens, Mobile Rhino suggests backing up iPhones and iPads to the cloud or another device, via iCloud or iTunes. The Apple iCloud service conducts automatic backups from iPhones and iPads and is best suited for users that do not connect their device to a PC or Mac on a regular basis. Backing up to Apple iTunes is an ideal practice for users that regularly back up over 1GB of videos or photos, connect their device to a computer regularly, or prefer a networked backup of information. Mobile Rhino suggests backing up to both iCloud and iTunes for an extra measure of protection.
For options outside of Apple’s native backup system, Mobile Rhino suggests using PhoneCopy, a free app that saves mobile device data onto its website in a personal user account, or Dr. Fone, a data recovery solution for iOS devices that restores information previously deleted from a user's device.
If loss or theft of a mobile device occurs, Mobile Rhino’s digital life protection offers ID theft protection, personal privacy monitoring, and breach victim remediation services that will assist in remotely wiping mobile device data, monitoring for identity theft, and helping breach victims to recover sensitive information that may become compromised.
